How To Become a Comedian : Summary of Steps to Becoming a Comedian


CHRIS MURPHY: Hi. On behalf of Expert Village,
this is Chris Murphy. I’m here at the New York Comedy Club in New York City. Today we’re
going to talk about how to have a career in comedy. Okay. To summarize how to have a career
in comedy, the first thing you have to do is take my class. No, sorry. I had to plug
it. Take a comedy workshop, do open mics, do pre-shows, make sure you don’t bring ’em
all to one show, spread them out, do it at one club, then have the special event where
you bring all your friends, okay, and then you have a great DVD, learn from comics at
a bar who have a lot of experience. Do not let anybody intimidate you, okay? That’s very
important out of all of them. Also, what you want to do is barter for some spots and get
stage time on the road. And more important than anything else, take care of the crowd.
If you take care of the crowd, the crowd will take care of your career. On behalf of Expert
Village, thanks for watching.
